    It would have been nice to see Thomas and Betts in the mix.

    Since I can't ride......

    The nice thing about WA is no state income tax. Still waffling on which bike and ever since the day I got the DRZ in 06 there was a GG Pampera 300 and I'm still kicking myself for not buying it over the DRZ.

    Riding the Cascades: 2 or 4 stroke??

    Well that brings me too gearing. I was thinking 50 outback and just switch out the front. 13, 14, 15 out to give some range. Can I do this with the same chain length? I like that BYOB thing Beta does. I can just see me just buying a bike right from my easy chair.

    It really sounds like the bike I'm looking for.

    Riding the Cascades: 2 or 4 stroke??

    What I would be afraid of is just wishing I should have bought a 500. With all the modifications or adjustments that need to be made to get some bikes to run right it seems the Beta's were closer to being out of the box ready from the reviews I've been seeing. The problem is DS technology is too slow to advance from the old school era. It's time I quit waiting for just the right bike to come around to get me back into the saddle. Being close to lots of highway and open desert I want to make sure I get enough bike and still have some pleasure if I get into tight single track.

    So I'm looking to get back into the game finally after trading off the DRZ for a quad 7 years ago. I'm in central WA and I'm down to 2 choices for a new bike. Beta 390 or the 430...which way do I go?

    Done with the DRZ!

    This was the bike I was leaning on. http://www.mtbakermoto.com/new_vehicle_detail.asp?sid=08332941X8K31K2009J7I38I14JPMQ3134R0&veh=112428&CatDesc=Motorcycles&ModelYear=2009 or maybe this one http://www.skagitpowersports.com/new_vehicle_detail.asp?sid=02352106X8K31K2009J7I40I59JPMQ2149R0&veh=97739&CatDesc=Motorcycles&ModelYear=2009

    Done with the DRZ!

    OK the last ride was a good but aggresive one. I was usually the slowest one of the bunch. One being on the 2010 Husaberg 390 which I was afraid of to ride since I new that would do me in for a new one. So as my sore ass recovers after a good day of riding, I ponder which bike would bring up my pleasure of ride and hone my trail skills. I'm considering a new yet maybe a hold over depending on the deal I can find. I am even considering a 2 stroke except needing a plate for Washington State. What bike would be best for me?

    Why wont they build what we want?

    I had both bikes and sold the TW 4 years ago to a friend who still has it. I wish the TW woulda had a 6 speed 2 range tranny with a 350 with more clearance. That 200 was a goat with low gearing. A ride I miss. The DRZ give me the desire for a better dirt bike plated.
